It's been a long time coming - a whole 12 months, in fact - but it seems the country really is on course for a barbecue summer.
And before you mutter: 'I've heard that one before', the prediction comes from a forecaster with a somewhat better record on the subject than the poor old Met Office.
It was the Met men who told us to expect a 'barbecue summer' in 2009, which turned out to be so spectacularly wrong that it led to an embarrassed Met Office dropping long-term seasonal forecasts.
In fact, last summer was a wash-out, as correctly predicted by Positive Weather Solutions, which has 'out-forecast' the Met Office over the last two years with a string of accurate long-term predictions. And PWS is confident that Britain will indeed see a barbecue summer this year...........The PWS forecast is:
JUNE: Starts with fine weather. Rain mid-month but temperatures warm to very warm. Changeable later in month with fine conditions although some heavy rain to finish.
